I TUTOR and TEACH science classes of elementary, middle school, and high school levels. I am proficient in Biology (Life Science), Physical Science, Astronomy, Earth Science, Geology, Ecology. ALL classes include experiments.** I also specialize in helping students prepare for Exit Exams, help 8th graders preparation for High School, and Home Schoolers preparation for College. I am certified in ESOL instruction. All classes can be taught in English and intermediate level American Sign Language. FOR TUTORING or full CLASSES, please CLICK TO THE RIGHT to select the type and duration of the class. or CLICK ABOVE to "Ask a question". I'm 68 years old. My home is surrounded by trees, squirrels, birds and flowers. I've been teaching science for about 35 years in private schools, public schools, technical schools as well as online. I retired from public school about 10 years ago but I never stopped teaching. The best part of what I do is seeing your face as you make the connections between what you knew and the information we shared in class that day. It is exciting! We use lots of pictures, videos, research, creating models or drawings, and experiments you can do at home with your family. We use every kind of learning you can think of and maybe a few you may not know! I have always taught science. It's fascinating and it is never ending. We are curious aren't we! It's learning how your world works. It is ever changing… the world we think we know and what we think we know about it. We are always finding out new things. Some of that means what we thought in the past might be wrong. That's ok. What is the new answer??? Let's find out together. What do you say??? I offer: 1) Private lessons - Tutoring on an as need basis or regularly depending on the goal of the student. 30-90 minutes as you prefer. If you prefer to complete an entire subject as a review or personal interest class, you can choose by semester or year. Semester classes will last 18 classes. It takes 36 classes to complete a year study program in each subject. 60 minutes/class, typically 1 or 2 classes per week; 2) Small-group classes of no more than 5 students - same as above; 3) Personal enrichment or Continuing Education Classes, purchase 5 week increments. 30-90 minutes/ class. These would include catching up on a subject, study skills, research/ term paper tutoring, project building, exam preparation, introduction to a semester subject class (18 classes in total length). All classes can be taught in intermediate level American Sign Language (ASL).

Professional, precise, and passionate about Biology! Thank you, Marie, for your thorough teaching!
Ms. Marie is methodical, explains the concepts well, and gives great study techniques. I also found it beneficial that during our session, she asked about my specific learning styles.
Marie teaches with great enthusiasm, and it's hard not to get excited when your teacher is so excited about the subject. She has a true appreciation for how things work together, and it's like she helps you put the puzzle pieces together to see the cause and effects. With Marie, it's not like you learn tons of individual facts and memorize a bunch of stuff that you'll forget later. Instead you learn how one thing affects another so you can understand cycles and processes in Science. Plus, she has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh, so that makes learning fun.
